The Optical Illusion


With Irene moving up the coast
Obama took the lead,
Positioning the cameramen
With bold and striking speed.

The pictures show proficiency
At placing photo crews,
In spots that show his expertise –
And make the evening news.

No leading from behind this time,
With photo ops in play,
And images for use in ads
Around election day.

And when he’s saved the nation from
The storm we call Irene,
The President can make his way
Back to the putting green.

But best of all, in Irene’s wake,
He has a new excuse,
For economic misery –
And why he can’t produce.

A picture may indeed be worth
A thousand fancy lines,
But leadership cannot be faked
With optical designs.
